Brian Scott's WinStar World Casino 350K Race Preview

Horn FanSenior Writer INovember 5, 2009

Brian Scott is looking to regain his mojo at Texas, in Friday's nights WinStar World Casino 350K truck race.

The last few weeks have not been nice to Scott, it's led to some frustrating finishes and cost him two point positions.

"We've been snakebit these last few weeks," said Scott.

"No matter what we do it hasn't worked in our favor. Whatever we need to do to change our luck I am willing to do. Voodoo, witchcraft, wizardry whatever it takes."

I may have a easy quick fix for him, if the cast on his right wrist has come off due to it be fully healed. He may just want to put one back on his wrist for the final three races.

Scott despite breaking his right wrist in June, he's run a excellent season picking up his first career win, then nine top fives and 12 top-10 finishes.

He'd like nothing more than to collect a good solid finish at Texas, and pick up some points to get back into the top five.

Scott likes racing at TMS, likes the challenges the track offers racing on it, with it being fast and that it's multi-grooved.

It suits his style of driving, he likes to race in the outside groove and hopes to use it to his advantage.

One thing for sure his crew chief Jeff Hensley will be a asset for him, with his experience racing at Texas.  

Since with Mike Skinner he's won five poles, four second place finishes and never finished out of the top-10 at Texas.

The only thing Hensley lacks is a black cowboy hat for winning and he might have a ace up his sleeve with pit strategy to propel Scott and Xpress Motorsports to victory lane.

Scott will be racing chassis No. 52 at Texas. In it's last four races, the chassis has collected three top-10 finishes and had to be totally rebuilt after Chicago.

I expect his Xpress team to have another stout truck for him, Scott will qualify well, then use the high groove for another top five finish and with a late caution.

We could see Hensley use pit strategy, by having Scott come to pit road for four fresh tires and chase the leaders down for the win.
